  1. I hope that works on my dvd-rom. If the video is unavailable for US players, I might try that.
  2. This site sells it, but I'd prefer to buy it from a US company. Postage isn't too bad though.
  3. I am interested in getting the Violette et Mr B. video. I'm having a hard time finding it... Has anyone watched this film? What do you think about it?
  4. Allegra Kent and Conrad Ludlow in Symphony in C Also, I liked the snowflakes in the Bolshoi Ballet's The Nutcracker. Tutus and bourrees, that's how snowflakes should be.
  5. I don't know if this is the correct board but, what ballet is this picture of Diana Adams from: http://balletbookstore.com/ballerina/pic/adams01.jpg ? I love the costume, it looks very regal, and I am very curious as to what ballet it is and if it is still in the repertory.
  6. Oh, I am sorry, I meant Gelsey's costume from the Firebird ballet. http://www.uq.net.au/~zzdmcana/SevenBrides/firebird.html
  7. I don't really like the costumes for William Forsythe's ballets, except for the tutus in The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude. And what does everyone think of Gelsey Kirkland's Don Quixote costume, the one she hated? I like it except for those wings...
  8. I haven't seen the tv commercial but I did see the print ad in a magazine. I have a question about Suki Schorer's name. If you go to corbis.com and search for schorer, there are some pictures of her but with the name Suzanne! Can anyone explain?
  9. I don't know, but here is what is says on the SAB website: "Suki Schorer began her professional career with the San Francisco Ballet and joined the New York City Ballet in 1959, becoming a principal dancer in 1968. Her repertory included principal roles in Apollo, Serenade, Concerto Barocco, Symphony in C, Stars and Stripes, Tarantella and Jewels among others. Balanchine choreographed solo roles on her in Don Quixote, Raymonda Variations, Harlequinade, and A Midsummer Night's Dream. "
  10. I will definitely have to check out that film! But it's only in New York, right? And also I am planning on buying the book.
  11. Shostakovich composed ballet music... how exciting!! I would really like to see those ballets.
  12. I didn't know Jock Soto had a boyfriend.
  13. Really, I find the idea of dancing naked pretty repulsive. The fact that the dancers are naked pretty much distracts from whatever the dance is trying to express, unless, of course, the dance is about sex.
  14. We all know that Suki Schorer teachers ballet at SAB, but what about her time as a dancer with NYCB? I can't find very much information about her then. She was a principal dancer so she must of been good, but you never hear about her like you do Danilova, Adams, or the rest. Can anyone tell me something of her life as a dancer?
  15. Suzanne Farrell. I think she's one of the most beautiful people in general, not just in the ballet world.
